La Brasa Somerville Wedding: Kalen & Elias

Tuesday, Mar 16, 2021Weddings
alen and Elias's wedding was one of the most intimate and delightful events I've been able to photograph. Starting out at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge the ladies got ready enjoying each others company and Kalen was helped into a dress that seemed to be made just for her. After some solo portraits and a first look with her dad, she headed over to the Charles River Reservation for her first look with Elias. I found this first look extra sweet because they chose to include their adorable pup who was super exited to be involved in the fun. Using the cloudy day with the nice even light I was able to capture some wonderful portraits of the couple, their dog, and their families in the park. Their venue, LaBrasa Restaurant also ended up being a fantastic location to take photos. The warm wood paneled walls photographed beautifully so we spent some time before the Ketubah signing taking portraits in the space before their guests arrived. The signing and the ceremony were both wonderfully intimate, with only the closest friends and family attending, laughing and enjoying this special time together. Moving into the reception, it was a foodies dream! One great thing about having a wedding at restaurant is the food is incredible, and the atmosphere allows for good connections between guests. The farm tables were decorated with simple tasteful flowers and the conversations were rich. But once the bride and groom opened up the dance floor, that's when the party began! It was a pleasure to photograph this day for Kalen and Elias, a huge thank you to both of them for having me there!
